GA and AL Power will not turn off service if you're behind payments

(WTVM) - If you're having trouble paying your power bill, there's no need to worry during this cold weather.

Both Georgia and Alabama Power say if you are behind on your payments and the temperature is 32 degrees or lower -- they won't shut off your service.

Keeping the power on for customers when it's unusually cold out is a policy for both companies.

They say if you need help paying your bill, you can call customer service.
